One of the difficulties in teaching from the book of Isaiah is to try and capture what he says so eloquently. His messages are filled with vivid word pictures. It’s difficult to capture and condense what he says into a concise format.
Turn to chapter 55. There is so much in it. He challenges us to turn to God while He may be found, call on Him while He is near, because if you do this you will receive mercy from the Lord and be freely pardoned.
Then He warns, don’t try to understand everything. God’s thoughts are not our thoughts, His ways aren’t our ways. They’re so much higher than our ways. His thoughts are so much greater than your thoughts.
He then amplifies: just “as the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my Word.” It “goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” So go to God’s Word. Study it. Hide it in your heart. Learn from what God says about what He wants you to know about life, so you can turn to God, seek Him and find Him.
God wants you to know His purpose and plan for your life, even though His thoughts are higher than your thoughts and His ways higher than your ways. God wants you to know Him personally. Turn to Him. Trust in Him. Search the Scriptures to understand Him and He will meet and care for you.
